McGary looking to trim list soon

The summer is winding down and Kaleb McGary is getting ready to play tight end for Tacoma (Wash.) Fife. The 6-foot-8 and 284-pound McGary is also getting some time to play another sport right now.

Kaleb McGary says that he's had a busy summer. He's been busy training for football until recently. The 6-foot-8 and 284-pound tight end has now hit the road a little bit this summer to play basketball with his AAU team.

"The summer has been busy," McGary said. "I am getting a chance to play in a couple of basketball tournaments with my AAU team. I don't know what I am averaging. I am really more of a defender."

The AAU tournaments have taken up his time that he was dedicating to training. He says that he was working on the basics of the game and also focusing on playing tight end his senior year for Tacoma (Wash.) Fife.

"Before I got going on this basketball tour I was just trying to get faster and stronger. I had been working really hard on my lateral quickness as well. I am just getting ready to play tight end this year."

McGary has had a chance to take some visits this summer. He says that he will likely narrow down his list after he gets back from basketball. "I have been to Oregon, Oregon State and Washington State. I will probably narrow things down when I get back. I haven't really thought about my official visits yet."

There is little doubt that players like McGary don't grow on trees. He has a great combination of size, speed and overall athleticism. He's hearing that some teams like him as a tight end, others as a lineman and some teams like him at both.

"A lot of teams like me on the line," McGary said. "Others like me as a tight end and some other teams like me at both spots. I am not really looking at that as part of the decision. I am just looking for the best fit."

The Huskers have offered McGary and he says that Nebraska is a team that he's still considering. Nebraska has told McGary that they like him at both the tight end and on offensive line potentially.

"Nebraska is still in the mix for me as much as anyone else is. They are not sure if they like me more as a tight end or as an offensive lineman. I would like to get a shot at tight end wherever I go."
